I’ve met a lot of people with mixed reviews for Speed Dating.

I’ve heard the rare occasion of Singles getting a few phone numbers and dates.

But, more often than that, I’ve heard  Singles end up getting poor results.

Here’s how  Speed Dating works:

STEP 1: Meet Your Dates For The Evening

You show up, sit down and have a certain amount of time to talk to a woman.  Sometimes it’s a minute, three minutes, five minutes, or maybe more.  It depends on the Dating Service that you go with or the Speed Dating company.

The problem is, let’s say there’s only 15 women (Some Speed Dating companies can have less or more).

Now, out of only 15 women, how many of those would you say are your type or you’re attracted to?

Considering not very many attractive women show up for these kinds of services (because they don’t need to), you’re most likely only going to be attracted to potentially 3 of those women.

Out of those 3 women that you’re attracted to (by the way, EVERY OTHER GUY there is also attracted to them because they are most likely the most attractive women there), you’re now competing with 15 other guys to meet those women.

STEP 2: Connect With Your Dates

You only have a limited time to interact with those women.

In many cases, these interactions can be awkward and uncomfortable.  You will have to meet and talk to women that you have no interest in.  Not only that, but you don’t really get the opportunity to REALLY get to know these women because there is a time constraint.

Not to mention, you’re competing with every other guy in the room.

STEP 3: Choose The Women You Want To Talk To Again

Once this whole thing is over, you then get to choose which women you want to see again, and vice versa.

However, you ONLY get to communicate with the woman that you liked ONLY if she picks you and there is a match.

If she doesn’t like you, you don’t get anything from it.

Here’s what makes it suck even more… you don’t even get the woman’s phone number!

What do you get?  Her e-mail address.  So now you have to send her an e-mail, see if she’ll reply back, and then get her phone number and attempt to set up a date.

I’ve heard from a lot of guys who DO get matches that these follow-up process often leads to “flakes” and even if a woman is matched with you, some may not even reply to your e-mails or may not be interested a few days later.

What does Speed Dating cost?

It depends on the Dating Service or Agency, but it can be anywhere from $25-$60 for an evening.

What’s the better solution? Each to their own. Psychology Today (https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/beautiful-minds/201012/speed-dating-is-it-worth-your-time) has a take on this subject that is worth reading. But, if you are wanting something more substantial, the better solution is to cultivate the confidence, social skills, and ability to meet, attract and date women anytime, anywhere.

That means being able to meet women in at coffee shops, on the street, in the book store, at the grocery store, at shopping malls – during your day-to-day life.  If you go to nightclubs, bars or lounges, then that’s okay too.

But I don’t have the time to meet women!  I’m busy enough as it is!

Again, it’s about MAKING IT APART OF YOUR LIFE.

You see beautiful women everywhere.  It only takes 5 minutes out of your day to approach her

I don't know how things would look like by the time we get to 2020.

Just go dancing. You don't have to pay anything beyond a possible cover charge, as a guy you get to pick who you meet, women usually say yes to the dance, you have the choice to talk or not during the dance, and the way a woman moves and responds to your lead gives you more information than her mere words.

I've never tried speed dating. Like you said, how much content can you get in, in three minutes. The concept seems weird to me.

Quoting author:

I will keep it short.

 

Dating, in general, is a complete waste of time. You either like someone after few meetings or you don't if both parties throw all the cards on the table.

 

No one is perfect and two imperfect people who are willing to admire the goodness in one another make a great couple.

I like this, Funtimes.

Speed dating. Laughable orgy. Shallow.

Funtimes,

 

Agreed! Mostly it's just a place you go to (dating, that is) when you want to waste time you can't get back, get hurt and becomlittlettle more jaded.
